Art on the ART Bus

Art on the ART Bus is a mobile gallery on one of Arlington County’s ART buses. Run by Arlington’s Special Projects Curator, Cynthia Connolly, this unique bus features original works of art. This dynamic connection between public transit and original art makes the commute as exciting as the destination, cultivating a vibrant arts experience for transit in Arlington County, Virginia. Initiated in December 2010, this bus rotates throughout the different routes available to ART bus passengers. Learn more about the program and view past exhibits.

The new exhibit featuring photographer Anne Rowland is up and will be rotating ART bus routes so all riders can enjoy the artwork!

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: These photographs by Anne Rowland show Arlington County’s boundary defined by the Potomac River. The terrain varies: bucolic forest northwest of Key Bridge, a mysterious woodland just to the south, and urban parks such as Lady Bird Johnson Memorial Garden and Long Bridge Park. Further downstream along the Mount Vernon Trail, the shoreline ends at the broad mouth of Four Mile Run. These photos are comprised of multiple images digitally assembled from both an iPhone and a remotely-triggered point-and-shoot camera attached to a 20-foot-tall bamboo pole.

Art on the ART Bus is funded in part by Arlington Transit.
